LGBT+ History Month 2024

LGBT+ History Month is back for 2024; every February, the UK celebrates LGBT+ History Month and this year’s theme is Medicine – #UnderTheScope. The theme celebrate LGBT+ people’s contribution to healthcare and medicine throughout history and in present day, including showcasing the work of LGBT+ healthcare staff during the pandemic whilst also considering the difficulties faced by LGBT+ communities receiving healthcare and the inequalities still faced today. You can read all about the 2024 theme and find out more about LGBT+ contributions to medicine here.

We’ve also put together a resources pack containing helpful websites, podcasts and general resources as well as some medical and veterinary LGBT+ specific articles which you can read here. Plus, there’s the CAW Pride Guide which contains information about local and national LGBT+ support groups which you can find here.

If you or anyone you know needs additional support, you can find out more about the wellbeing services CAW, including free therapy sessions, on our dedicated Wellbeing page. We’d also love to hear about any events you’re attending this LGBT+ month or any resources you think would be helpful for LGBT+ communities so please reach out to us on social media or email us at
